What's Cooking?

Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and ask you to make it at home; you choose the second and bring it to our discussion to share.We'll meet to discuss both recipes and to sample the one you chose. We'll have a potluck of tasty treats! This month's selection is Bubby's Brunch Cookbook by Ron Silver, and our recipe choice is Green Eggs and Ham.
